Very happy to get nonstop flights in both directions. Saves approximately 3 hours in overall travel time each way.

Being a mileage hound, I would have taken a different tack on this one. Would have been $225 all in on united.com for same itin using the 5% OFF LINK, with approx. 4,880 miles + 1,000 mile booking bonus. So $225 minus value of 5,880 miles (conservatively @.015/mile) would be $225 - $88, for a net of $137.

Glad you're happy with your results though and have a great trip.

Thanks for the tip, Travelguy!

I'm not really the mileage hound, since I (fortunately) don't have to fly very often. I bought the tickets in two separate transactions, which netted me $50 in Priceline hotel bonus bucks. For me, those will come in much more handy than miles.

Also, the last time I traveled on a Priceline air ticket (United also) the self-service check-in kiosk at the airport asked if I wanted to input my Mileage Plus number. I went ahead and did it, thinking it would kick back due to the Priceline ticket, but surprisingly the points posted to my account. Perhaps a one time glitch....who knows!
